Florida Georgia Line and Hellbound Glory Talk About Elvis' Impact on Music

March 18, 2013


Country rockers Hellbound Glory and Florida Georgia Line both recently made the rock 'n' roll pilgrimage to Graceland. Fans can now check out videos (above) of Florida Georgia Line's tour of Graceland, plus a special performance by Hellbound Glory on the front steps of the mansion.

Break-out country-duo Florida Georgia Line shares how Elvis impacted their music and why the "Aloha From Hawaii" concert has dominated their playlist for the past six months. Country rockers Hellbound Glory performed the Elvis-classic "Blue Moon of Kentucky" and gave an impromptu show for Elvis fans inside the Graceland plaza. Both country acts have been heavily influenced by Elvis and showed great appreciation for his contributions to music and pop culture.

Florida Georgia Line stopped by Graceland on March 15, before performing for a sold-out crowd at Minglewood Hall in Memphis. Hellbound Glory made a surprise visit to Graceland on Thursday, February 28, before taking the stage on Kid Rock's "Rebel Soul" Tour at the FedExForum on Friday, March 1.
